The only thing I do different is I use a small paint brush and paint a thick layer of petroleum jelly all over my finger, around the nail (being careful not to get it on the nail) and also under the nail. This helps with clean up so much - you let the polish dry and then it just wipes right off! Minimal clean-up. I read this tip somewhere and I can't remember where, so if it was your tip, please let me know so I can credit you!
So I wanted to keep it sorta green for Wednesday, and figured, if I do all this work, it's staying on for a day or two! I did a base coat of SH hydrating basecoat then did two coats of China Glaze For Audrey. I used ChG Adore, Cherish and Metallic Muse and did the drops according to Colette's video tutorials.
It's really subtle, but I like it: these should all be clickable (shade)
This was the first nail I did and I was really happy with the way it turned out...the rest aren't so good, but still, I'm happy.
And the full mani in full sun
The hubby and I had dinner at the beach tonight and so he helped me take the photos. :) Yes, that is the ocean in the background. We had over 80 degrees today...unheard of for this time of year. I am NOT complaining!
Thanks for looking, let me know what you think of my second attempt (first successful attempt) at water-marbling.
Enjoy the holiday and celebrate safely. Please, don't drink and drive.
Have a sparkly, shiney day.
